It's not just potluck anymore…

Who doesn’t love a great carrot cake with cream cheese frosting?  We made this for dinner last week and had lots of requests for the recipe, so here you go.  We made 600 pieces of cake (using 15 cake pans, 12x2x20 inch size), but I pared down the recipe to just one cake with 20 servings if you want to make this at home.  The large quantity recipe is below.  This recipe is definitely the best way I know of to eat your carrots!
